Tue, 26 May 2015 06:11:05 EST New to forum but not Herbalife I have had success in the past on Herbalife...lost 30 pounds following the plan and attending Fit Camps. Then life happened and a health challenge happened and a new stressful and sedentary job happened (I wasn't working when I lost the weight and I was a distributor and focused on the program/workouts)...and the combination of these, plus falling off the self discipline wagon led to me gaining all the weight back. And that hurts. <BR> <BR> When I was doing the deal, I felt better than I had... Sun, 8 Mar 2015 18:22:54 EST thinking of joining plan.

I have been with Sparkpeople for about a year. It has helped, but Herbalife was the best. I was a distributor and I was my best, unfortunately I wasn't very good at selling it. After my second pregnancy I let my membership lapse. year later I got back on. Then about 2 years ago I let it lapse again. Now I want to try again. I just put in a request at the herbalife home page. If they don't respond quick enough, I might try one of y'all on this site. ...

Thu, 27 Dec 2012 20:50:17 EST lunchtime I was wondering if anyone would think it would be ok to have a cup of soup and 1 slice of herbalife pie for lunch? i have the extra calories and i was instructed that i should try to get my cal in by dinner so i dont eat after i have dinner. I eat late i usually will get dinner done by 7pm Wed, 19 Dec 2012 22:53:45 EST When making the shakes. . . Do you always use a blender or try to mix by hand? <BR> <BR> I was wondering because when I do it by hand I tend to have a bit of a chunky shake and was looking for something to make things better. I don't want to have to wash my whole blender when I'm just having one shake a day. Wed, 12 Dec 2012 19:18:42 EST Need a distributor? Hi everyone!

New to this team Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> I'm new to this team and should receive my first order of herbalife (in about 10 years) this week. I used herbalife shakes about 10 years ago with great results. I felt great and lost a ton of weight. Even my digestion and skin worked/looked better!

I have lost another 3 pounds, which sort of fell away when I wasn't paying attention. I like it when that happens. I had been feeling discouraged that I wasn't losing and suspected that I may actually have gained, so I was thrilled when I stepped on the scale this morning! I have lost a total of 15 pounds this year, and I can't even say it's been difficult. Yes, I know it's 15 pounds spread out over 6 months, but slow and steady wins the race, right? I am...

By complete coincidence I was reading a story published today in the Huffington Post titled "Too Little Protein in Diet Could Lead to Too Much Body Fat," and in it is quoted Dr. David Heber - who is on the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board and is the Director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition.

Thu, 4 Aug 2011 22:32:08 EST More pills? My representative told me to take more of the pills, such as total control and the cell activator during each meal. Meaning (2) total control pills at breakfast, (2) at lunch. She also advised me to take (3) cell activators (3) times a day. I was wondering if anyone else is doing this and if they are experiencing any side effects from it. Tue, 2 Aug 2011 23:51:53 EST New to Herbalife & needing some direction. I started HL today, I heard some great things about, and I was excited. However, I have been starving all day. At first I thought it was just a mental thing, but after reading others post they seem to be pretty satisfied throughout the day.

Mon, 4 Jul 2011 23:30:29 EST Long Lost Love Hi, my name is Rochelle and I'm from Amarillo, TX. <BR> I started using Herbalife in December 1999 as a Supervisor. I kept using Herbalife until 2007 when a rift between me and my inlaws (aka upline LOL) happened when they moved away leaving me and my distributorship hanging. I figured I didn't need them nor Herbalife products anymore, so I eventually fell back into my bad eating habits and reached my all-time high in weight of 198 pounds.

I am curious to hear from you guys and get your thoughts on this: So I have been sticking to about 1200 calories and working out at Curves 6 days a week and walking for about an hour or hour and a half most days of the week. This week has been tough for me because instead of seeing the scale go down it went up a pound or two. <BR> <BR> I have been asking around and I am hearing it is my calorie intake that it is too low.

I also have no more sponge bobs living in my home so now I can take my home back over and make it mine again. They left my home in shambles and I am slowly taking it back. I would clean when they were here and within a day they pigged it up. It got to the point I said the heck with it. I am disabled and all they did ... Thu, 23 Jun 2011 15:51:14 EST Went to an Herbalife Info Meeting, impressed! My mom is a distributor and she took me along to her monthly meeting on Saturday and after learning all about more of the product line I have decided I need a part time job to support taking Herbalife! Wish I could sell it but I'm really not good at talking people into trying something. At this point I figure I just need to take what I can and come up with my own testimony so when people ask me how I'm losing weight I can insert my praises for HL. And of course Sparkpeople! <em>334</em> ... Sun, 19 Jun 2011 17:58:30 EST Herbal Tea Concentrate Do you drink it, like it, thoughts on it? Favorite of the flavors? Least favorite?

I tried the Cookies n Creme Shake with 8 oz of 2% milk in my Curves blender cup with a ball that mixes it. It was hard to get down. I guess I would say that it was thick. I just really don't want to give up before I have even began. I used to do the Wild Berry Shake with a cup of mixed fruit with the V-8 splash and ice in the blender. It tasted just like a smoothie. But doing it with milk is extremely hard to get down. <BR> <BR> Can someone please help m...

Then, day four I started having BAD stomach cramps-I thought it might have been due to that food I ate (shrimp) that day but I'm not sure. The stomach cramps went on for three days. I am finally through them and whether they were related to the cleanse or my diet I may never know. . . <BR> I'm still taking it but I honestly don't feel any different. I'm cert...

Thu, 10 Mar 2011 20:58:40 EST Question regarding Shakes Hi there - <BR> New here. I was wondering, does the shake change in anyway if were to freeze it? I know this sounds weird, but for some reason, I paranoid of it losing its nutritional value. My plan would be (if its reasonable) is to freeze the night before work, then take to work and have it for lunch. <BR> <BR> BTW - <BR> ANY and ALL advise, recipes, tips, tricks, success, horror stories - are welcome. <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> E.

I had breakfast about 10:00 this morning and the next time I was able to have anything was another shake ab... Mon, 21 Feb 2011 23:13:44 EST Herbalife Protein Bars Just a quick note. I tried the Vanilla Almond protein bar today, and I want to let y'all know that they are SOOOOO delish! I have had the coconut and fudge ones, and they don't even get close to the vanilla almond. Tastes like Snickers. So GOOD! I know tastes vary, but I'm just giving my 2 cents... for whatever it's worth. <em>250</em> Mon, 21 Feb 2011 23:11:37 EST Protein Balls Also, does anyone know the nutrition info of the protein balls? I'm planning on making them at some point this week to take to our WLC this weekend and I want to provide the info for everyone. . .

I made them tonight and got a thumbs up from the Hubby, kids and the In-Laws! <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> I only ate half a the regular sized ones so I'm sure I'm not breaking my diet by not knowing the full content of it but I just wanted to put it in my food log. Fri, 18 Feb 2011 23:05:41 EST Starting a WLC Tomorrow! So excited!! <BR> <BR> One of the WLCs is how I got involved with the products (sounds like dating, eh?) and while that group doesn't meet any longer I finally found a new group close enough to get to and we are starting tomorrow! <BR> <BR> I really need this kick in the pants I've been struggling and I think this will also help me try out more of the products. I'm also BFing my son and the leader knows which products are safest for me to use. Score! <BR> <em>244</em> Fri, 11 Feb 2011 21:08:12 EST Other companies Do most of you stick to just herbalife? Or do you try any other companies protien products? My doctors office sells like...bariatric products, so i'll pick up drink mixes and an oatmeal mix and bars from there sometimes because they are cheaper than Herbalife and it gives me a bit more variety. Are there any other products you recommend? Thu, 10 Feb 2011 10:57:54 EST adding Prolessa™ Duo to my shakes I started herbalife dec 8 2010. I dropped 20 pounds since and went from size 20 to 14.

I don't really know much about that product and I am trying to determine if it is beneficial for weight loss. <BR> Tue, 4 Jan 2011 08:49:12 EST 1st Quarter 2011 Chat I like the idea of having a Daily Chat thread, a virtual "Nutrition Club", if you will, for our team.

Sat, 1 Jan 2011 12:30:18 EST To weigh or not to weigh? That is the question! We've broached this topic in another thread recently, whether or not you weigh yourself every day or not. Previously a constant weigher (several times a day), I have been going on two weeks now of only weighing myself once a week, and this is the first time I have ever tried this. I just wanted to share what I am learning with you all: <BR> <BR> 1. I've done better in the last two weeks than I have since I started my plan! <BR> <BR> 2.

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if any of you have used Herbalife products throughout your pregnancies? If so, what did you use? Did you feel it was safe and nourishing to your body and baby? Do you see any benefits of using the products during pregnancy? Mon, 29 Nov 2010 09:50:54 EST exercise ? Do you think that the walking videos is as effective as the real thing? well i have a hard time exercising in the early morning because my muscles are so tight and if i dont exercise in the am sometimes i wont exercise at all so i figured if i do my walking videos maybe it would help. <BR> <BR> Sun, 28 Nov 2010 21:36:47 EST What is your goal this week? Do you set goals for yourself, and if so what is the time frame? <BR> <BR> I am finding that setting a week goal is working great for me.

Sun, 21 Nov 2010 19:35:37 EST Thanksgiving, how will we make it through?? Thanksgiving is the single biggest diet upsetter of them all. The holidays are tough.

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 10:57:59 EST Picking (Good Advice) Yesterday I had a meeting with my Herblife leader and she advised me to start "picking" which means to simply eat small things all day long as long I am getting my daily intake. Amazingly enough in the first 24 hours I actually lost 1 lb by getting all my water in for the day and picking until bedtime.

I just started Herbalife around the first of the month, but due to some prior planned trips away from home, haven't been 100% commited to the plan till this past week or so. Just joined the team tonite. Even without being totally faithful to the plan, I've lost about 4 lbs in the 2 weeks. not much, but it was a big milestone for me, because this morning, I discovered that I'd broken through the 200-lb mark, and am now UNDER!!!

If as you eat you add more weight to your body throughout the day you can accidentally discourage yourself. Weekly weigh ins are like multivitamins, good for your long term physical/emotional health and peace of mind. Any Thoughts.......? Mon, 18 Oct 2010 09:23:13 EST Shake Recipes Hi everyone! I'm doing the Herbalife Weight Loss Challenge in Austin and am LOVING the shakes!

I myself am a good 60+ pounds away from my goal. I need everyone to know that when I post something for you guys to read I'm no better than anyone else and I need you guys support too.

We are the only ones that have control over the oncoming changes in our lives. Outsiders can only spectate. Some encourage and others only stand on the sidelines and wait.

My heaviest weigh-in (When I decided to join Herbalife) was 264! <BR> <BR> This is a reality check because I prided myself on looking extremely good for 250 but let me be real, it's not fun not being able to shop with friends or wearing sweatpants (due to "size 12" denial) or seeing old pictures of myself and wondering what happened... <BR> <BR> I;m taking it one... Thu, 7 Oct 2010 16:58:19 EST Transitioning into something different. Fear Hey Everyone <BR> I have recently started Herbalife and I am truly excited but equally nervous. As happy as I am I keep seeing headlines online regarding SCAM which I refuse to look at and honestly all the positive doctor feedback on the Herbalife website may be bought. Honestly I've never been so satisfied with anything I have eaten dietwise until this program and I'm mortified that one day I'm going to find out something terrible. Anyone have any advice or feedback? Mon, 4 Oct 2010 08:46:29 EST not quite getting it I have been trying to follow herbalife but can't seem to get it. I know you replace two meals a day with the shakes and then have one healthy meal but what about snacks? I am on the road a lot for work and need quick easy ways to keep my energy up. Can someone tell me what sort of snacks they eat throughout the day or are we just supposed to do the three meals? <BR> <BR> Wed, 29 Sep 2010 08:14:14 EST What are your goals? My goals are to make better choices and lose weight at the same time. <BR> <BR> Too many times I try to "diet" and lose nutrients. However I do need help and a regime that I can stick to with little to no effort. <BR> <BR> Herbalife works for me---a couple of shakes, healthy snacks, and at least one rounded healthy meal. <BR> <BR> So far so good! Sat, 25 Sep 2010 22:41:07 EST How is everyone doing? Hope everyone is doing well. Are you still on the shake plan and how is it working for you? <BR> <BR> It's getting hard to stick to shakes but I plan on keeping it up. I havent eaten this well since I was a kid, as far as structure and eating at every meal. I'm still having a hard time with snacking but it's all mental and I've just gotta overcome it! <BR> <BR> Mon, 20 Sep 2010 17:44:48 EST Who has tried the cleansing program?

Thanks for this team!! Sun, 5 Sep 2010 00:28:39 EST Celebrate victories Was a little down last week as I didn't lose anything. But alas, I didn't gain either. This week, down 5.5 pounds. I am finally under the 260 mark. I also tell myself the longer it takes to lose it, the longer it stays off. Patience though is something I have to practice daily however, but hey I got the winter. I see in my future, after fall and winter cover up clothes I will unveil a whole new me to the world !!! Sat, 4 Sep 2010 12:35:02 EST It's what you make it! Week 2, weighed myself. No change. Felt a slight bit of discouragement over this because I stayed MOSTLY on this all week. I can't let this stop me like it always has in the past. My sponsor also told me inches could be lost even when weight is not. (I did walk a mile every day (in 1/4 mi. increments 4 times each day) so I could be building muscle! <BR> I just can't let this get me down as it always has in the past and then I give up. I can't give up! I believe in me! Sat, 28 Aug 2010 10:27:52 EST What do you eat each day? My daily meals look something like this: <BR> <BR> Goal: 1200 calories 100-120g protein <BR> <BR> Breakfast - drink shake and banana <BR> Snack - almonds <BR> Lunch - drink shake with greek yogurt <BR> Snack - cottage cheese <BR> Dinner - I aim to stay within 1200 calories, at dinner tryin to get at least 3 oz meat. i.e. schwans chicken cor don bleu with long grain wild rice and steamed veggies Fri, 27 Aug 2010 22:06:55 EST Losing inches instead of pounds? Is this common? I've already lost an inch around my waist. Wow! I have taken measurements every month for the past 6 years excluding my two pregnancies and I have never seen a drop like that. I've only lost 3 pounds (which I'm still super stoked about) but an inch seems like a large change. <BR> <BR> I have pumped up the exercise big time, so I'm sure it is a combination of things, but has anyone noticed consistent inches lost instead of dropping bigger amounts of weight? Not complain...

I have been doing so terrible these past two weeks!ugh!!! Tue, 24 Aug 2010 23:27:38 EST Victory I was so proud of myself for losing 7 pounds then I had to go and have ice cream last night. I was good up until then. I wasn't even hungry and I "knew" I didn't need or even "want' the ice cream so WHY did I do that? <BR> I even got a large size. If I would have just gotten a small I would have still been in my calorie range. I will NOT let this get me down. I know it's just the failure demon out to get me but he can't have me! <BR> Onward I go! Mon, 23 Aug 2010 05:48:36 EST Using other herbalife products? I was just wondering if anyone has used any other products from Herbalife like the supplements and stuff? I have the formula one shakes and the personal protein powder and liked both. I tried the protein drink though (mango peach) and it made me feel kind of sick. Wondering if anyone has had good or bad experiences with the other items?

Mon, 16 Aug 2010 15:54:49 EST Do you use the cell activator? I am curious who uses this or not, and what your results have been for both. My coach of course really encouraged me to use it, but with my past failures at diets I am not wanting to become to financially invested in this until I am sure I am sticking with it. <BR> <BR> DO you use the cell activator, any of the other products, and what have your results been? <BR> <BR> I am using the shakes, no personal protein but am considering that as well.

Mon, 22 Mar 2010 17:34:59 EST New to Herbalife! I'm on day 2 of Herbalife! I'm not a big tea drinker so I'm working on drinking it. I love the shakes though! I drink one for breakfast and one for lunch. Does anyone have any tips for making a thicker shake in the shaker? I can't use a blender at work. Tue, 16 Mar 2010 20:29:58 EST I have a few questions please So I've been on Herbalife for 1 week now and omg, I gained weight, I did really good the first few days, but I know I went wrong with dinner (portion control). I'm going to change it up, do a shake in the morning, well balanced satisfying lunch, and shake for dinner. Plus I'm going to add protein bars for snacks. <BR> What do you all do or use for appetite control. I'm hoping eating lunch instead of dinner will help, because by the time 3 o'clock comes around I feel like I'm starving. So... Tue, 23 Feb 2010 13:33:33 EST Challenge!

Thu, 18 Feb 2010 14:39:41 EST Finally posting to Spark Has taken me a bit -- signed up for an acct in August and finally using Spark pages daily since January. I'm amazed at how motivational Spark Pages, I enjoy reading other member's success stories and their journeys. Being fairly private, it has taken awhile for my first post but coming out of my shell! What a blessing to have support on something that has felt "private". Just what I needed apparently. Thank you:) Becky Tue, 16 Feb 2010 14:06:12 EST Hello, New to herbalife, just started today! Hi everyone, I've heard of Herbalife for years, my parents were on it once and they did lose weight. My husband met a man who was selling it at the dr's office the other day. he came to our home yesterday and presented it, we purchased enough to last us both 2 weeks to try it out. I will admit, I'm a little skeptic about eating so little calories at a meal, but I'm so tired of being overweight and feeling like crap everyday that I'm gonna give this a shot. I made myself my shake this morni... Tue, 16 Feb 2010 13:41:00 EST Recipes Hey there, <BR> <BR> Does anyone have good recipes for the bars/pies? The ones I've tried don't seem to work so well and I'd kind of like to try something besides drinking my lunch, ya know? <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> Amy <BR> Sun, 7 Feb 2010 09:25:14 EST Pregnancy and Herbalife Anybody on here pregnant and still using Herbalife? Is it recommended? I need something healthy and tasty as all I keep wanting to eat is carbs!!! I have gained a few pounds too quickly and I was wondering if Herbalife was safe during pregnancy? I was using it before I got pregnant and was losing weight but stopped when I found out I was pregnant! Any ideas? Mon, 1 Feb 2010 13:54:32 EST New to SP and Herbalife Hello everyone. My name is Amanda and I'm only on Day 3 of my Herbalife plan. I'm currently living in Tokyo and wish to meet my goal weight before I move back to the states in July. My starting weight was 198. I am 30lbs into my weight loss and have hit a plateau for the last few months. I managed to get back to my prebaby weight but can't seem to break out of the 160s on my own so I got set up with a great weight loss coach and a solid nutrition plan using the Herbalife Ultimate plan. Luckil... Sat, 30 Jan 2010 06:52:01 EST Formula 1 Flavors? Hey guys, <BR> <BR> I need to put in an order for more Formula 1 mix and was wondering if some of the other flavors are good. I love the vanilla and have tried the chocolate. Has anyone tried the Cookies n Cream or Cafe Latte flavors? I'd like to try them but would like some input first. Thanks! <BR> Sat, 30 Jan 2010 01:45:12 EST new weight loss challenge thru herbalife Hi all, I joined spark people a few months ago, but have not done much with it. I just started a weight loss challenge at the local herbalife club and am very excited. When she did my body analysis, I found out that I am losing muscle because I am not getting enough protien. So, as of Tuesday, I am tracking my intake in "my nutrition". I love it, it is very helpful to keep on top of my protien intake. Any suggestions or support along the way of this long journey is very much appreciated....

My sister in law introduced me to this site. I have been overweight my whole life. I have polycystic ovaries and have been told multiple times by doctors that I need to loose weight, but they all say good luck and it will probably not happen. They told me that it is four times as hard to loose weight with pcos. I have tried multiple weight loss strategies and nothing has seemed to really work, maybe a pound here and there. I started herbalife on October... Wed, 4 Nov 2009 13:17:31 EST I'm a newbie- to the team & to Herbalife! Hi! My name is Cori.
